It was originally purple. xD

Edit: While it was in the parking lot I had quite a few slogans written on it. My favorite is written across the hood: "Danger Ranger"

Lol, i have an old air filter i throw in just in case. everything usually gets a pretty good washing after the mudding. :D

Besides, mudding is so fun + not that many good offroading spots where I live.
